Requirements for filing a Personal Injury Claim
According to Alberta Provincial Law, property owners and managers are responsible for keeping public areas safe for those people entering and using them. Whether it is a commercial or retail business, industrial property, municipally owned property, private property, or residential property, it doesn’t matter. According to common law and the Occupier’s Liability Act, the person responsible for the property has a certain duty of care to those people who visit it.
Slip and fall personal injury claims arise when the buildings or the land they are erected on lack the adequate and proper maintenance, repair, and upkeep required. This also applies to protecting individuals from dangerous or hazardous conditions. With respect to the liability involved, the BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer team knows what to look for when representing the client. In addition to maximizing the compensation in your claim, we will ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process.
In many instances, the owner or manager of the property could be liable for your injuries, but in order to prove that they are liable, you and your BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer must provide evidence that:
The property owner or person responsible knew or should have known about the hazard or dangerous condition that existed
The property owner or person responsible failed to correct it or make the necessary adjustments required
The injury victim (plaintiff) was acting as expected in a reasonable manner when they sustained their injuries
While the frequency of slip and fall accidents throughout Alberta Province increases during the winter months, these types of mishaps can occur anywhere and at any time of the year.
